Having trouble coming up with perk ideas? Here are some of our favorites.

on Jun 19 2017
4th hire at Wefunder. I started XX to invest in more female founders. Now I plan to build Hogwarts for founders from everywhere.

Founders often get stumped when coming up with perk ideas for their campaigns. So today, we want to tell you to stop worrying about coming up with the greatest perk ever and just think of the best way to make your investors feel involved.

Perks are just a fun way of thanking investors for investing. But most importantly, it’s the most creative way of connecting with your greatest fans. Perks should make your investors feel like they are a part of your company, because they are! These perks don’t have to be extra fancy; you can simply offer your investors an investor-only mug each time they walk into your coffee shop. Or, for bigger dollar investors, you can invite them over to your office and throw them a dinner party (which is what we do…). It doesn’t matter what your perk is. Only thing that matters is that you’ve put thought into how your investors can feel like they’re a part of your startup’s journey.
